    I am a 20 year old college drop out that looks at the path this country is headed down and I do not know whether to cry from sorrow or to run away in fear, before you try to recruit me to your side, if you pledge allegiance to the republicans, the democrats, or big business don't waste your breath on me. We have hard times ahead of us but I really want to believe that we can save ourselves before it is too late.

    1-10% of the population MIGHT be able to survive what is coming. It takes tremendous amounts of time ad preps to make survival likely for yourself, and you probably won't want to still be alive, actually, with everything and everybody gone and life really, really hard, with all the diseases out to get you and no real defense against them anymore

    Not so much worried about a survival scenario so much as 1984

    1984 WILL be shtf. When the foreigners see the martial law, they'll stop buying our debt, wjhich means collapse of the $, which means nobody will work and there will be no trade, domestic or foreign. Why would anyone work for toilet tissue? thats what the $100 bill will be if nationwide martial law lasts for more than a week or so.

    I could see that being a reason for martial law in a few isolated places, but not the entire nation.

    If we can manage civil unrest throughout the nation without martial law coming in to play that would be preferable.
